How do You Feel Right Now? #12

Recommended Posts

I can sit here all day with my phone right next to me and not a peep from it, but the very first time i have no idea where it is someone tries to call me and it hangs up by the time i get to it, why is that, just a modern wonder.

Around here houses are infested with stink bugs and lady bugs about 6 months out of the year.  Right now I'm sitting here listening to the frogs in the creek.  Mom used to love frogs.  I put my phone in the other room across the house hoping I won't hear it half the time or I'll be too lazy to get up and answer it.  I have no desire to talk on it.  I have it to keep people from coming here.

Feel like crap.  I have been battling depression on and off for many years. Right now its ON!  I think my meds dont work anymore. My husband and I are separating. Probably for the best, havent been happy with eachother in a long time. I thank God for my daughter, she is 16 and she is the most beautiful soul.  she trys to help me.  I feel like I am failing her. I am just trying to find a starting point so I can climb out of this hole.  

 

Welcome to the forum!  Sorry to hear you are battling depression.

I may work from home and not leave the houses much but I still do have a daily routine. Today my routine is thrown off and I can feel my OCD and anxiety increasing. And of course it would have to happen on a Saturday as that is the one day per week when I feel somewhat decent.

Oh Dear!  OCD and anxiety sucks!   Hopefully tomorrow is better.

Yeah I was planning on resting today.  I actually believed it last night too.  After all of these years I believed I would be able to rest on an 85 degree day.  Bipolar disorder feels like being the incredible hulk.

It was nice today I mowed and the neighbors mowed for the first time too.  I don't really like them but the first mowing day the dog seems very happy every year running and playing out there all day.  I love that dog.❤️

I thought I was doing ok but when I sat down to rest awhile after doing chores, I immediately started crying. Out of the blue for me, definitely did not feel it coming. I figure maybe I need to cry and I'm going with it.

Hope everyone is doing as well as possible.

I feel okay. I woke up really late, which I feel like I should scold myself for, but in the end it makes for a shorter day which I like. My dog is quiety sleeping beside me and  I have a cup of coffee and a book to read so things could definitely be worse.

Yup that sucks when you get the shocker out of the blue. I think ourminds just say hey, hold on, not so happy there! Cry it out, thats ok too, imagine the tears as the bad leaving…..

I have been trying to build a small deck at the back of the house but have been stumped by anxiety and depression and in particular a row of bolts I had to install. Well I installed 9 out of the thirteen required so I am feeling pleased with my effort today. Goes without saying that Im picking on myself for not finishing them all…….

The same thing happened to me recently.  I was getting my haircut and had to get up and run to the bathroom.  I didn't want to cry in front of them.  Strangely most of the times I cry are out of the blue without warning.  I think I stuff everything down and try to put a show on for everyone around me all the time and eventually it gets to a point where I can't take it anymore and I cry or yell at someone for no reason.  The longer I have to pretend the worse things are when I finally can't take it anymore.

Looking into places to move to, preferably remote in the country, but it's discouraging. A few years ago, I remember how 2's and 3's got you a mansion, as in $200-$300K. Now they don't even get you a hovel, assuming one is available anywhere realistic.

I know some here are also looking and may have even found something, so congrats if you did. I don't know whether this bubble will pop or mushroom.

I've noticed those long bolts on my decks.  I wouldn't have any idea how to put them in.  It would be awful putting them in by hand.  Surely they make a power tool to make them go in quicker.  I stepped on one of the steps of my back deck and broke part of it off.  I just won't use those steps anymore.  Part of me wants to let all of the decks rot and just put a ladder out there to one of the doors.  It would be funny seeing the looks on people's faces when they climbed the ladder to get in here.

That sounds like a peaceful day

The bubble is popping according to my real-estate friend
